‘Clear Ex­am­ples’


I de­voured the Septem­ber/Oc­to­ber’14 is­sue of The Trail Rider. Not only am I a gaited-horse owner, but I also ap­pre­ci­ated the help­ful train­ing ar­ti­cles.

I es­pe­cially like ar­ti­cles that pro­vide clear ter­mi­nol­ogy and ex­am­ples of “what to do when the rid­ing gets bumpy,” be­cause some­where down the trail, it usu­ally does, even with smooth-gaited horses!

That’s why I par­tic­u­larly ap­pre­ci­ated Julie Good­night’s ar­ti­cle, “Sit the Spook.” It’s awe­some that she and pho­tog­ra­pher Heidi Me­locco con­trib­uted such greatly demon­stra­tive ac­tion pho­tos! I found my­self wish­ing I had some of my own to re­view after a spook ses­sion.

The ar­ti­cle pro­vided help­ful in­struc­tion and re­in­force­ment of how to ef­fec­tively and safely deal with a horse act­ing like a horse.
